“Perfect Ski base for a family of four”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed for week in early March. Samoens is the perfect base for skiing the Grand Massif- a really excellent ski area, good for beginners and intermediate skiers. The Grand Massif Express gondola is short 10 min walk from the apartment, although a little land train stops almost right outside the apartment, as does the ski bus if you want to explore the other entry points to The Grand Massif (Morillon, Sixt etc).
Samoens itself is a perfect “chocolate box” haute Savoie Village oozing with charm and character...loads of bars and restaurants, but also fantastic Delicatessens and of particular note, the wonderful Patisserie Tiffanie, which is only 2 mins walk away-perfect for those early morning croissants etc, some snacks for on the mountain (it's expensive up there) or a guilty pleasure for when you arrive back at the end of the day!
The apartment itself is fairly small, but has a lovely, cosy feel to it-perfect for a family of 4. It's modern and very well appointed, particularly the kitchen facilities. Also,Importantly, it has a really powerful and hot shower.
The kids also loved the selection of DVDs and the Playstation. I enjoyed reading the apartments copy of "Psycho-Stuart Pearce Autobiography" (well...it was either that or Dostoyevsky!)

“Brilliant holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

The location of the apartment is so convenient. Just 2 minutes walk to both ski bus and the centre of the village. Skiing is amazing. The locals are so friendly and you can get all you need within the centre. Definitely will go back there again.

“A wonderful week!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012 for a stay in February 2012

We had a brilliant time, the snow was superb and the apartment was very comfortable. We would have no hesitation in returning or recommending this property.

The skiing in the Grand Massif is fabulous and suitable for all levels of skier. There is plenty of off-piste adventure and the pistes are lovely wide motorways.

There are some lovely and reasonably priced restaurants in the village - La Louisianne is a particular favourite; serving delicious pizzas and past dishes.

The town bakery is also a 'must', it opens at 6 am and bakes the most delicious pastries.

“A perfect base in Samoens!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012 for a stay in January 2012

We loved this flat- it was a real home from home. But it had the advantage of a view of the Ski lift which is not something we enjoy here in Herefordshire!! It was quiet and peaceful, but only a few minutes walk from the beautiful Market square and plentiful shops and bars. With a ski bus stop only a minute away, it was also easy to access the excellent skiing.
Good food, good wine, good skiing and a lovely home-what more could you want!!

“Ideal apartment for a small group.”

We were really impressed with our stay here. Great location in village yet close to gondola lift. Apartment was very well equipped and met our needs well.
